I am now retired and finding myself becoming a couch potato and putting on weight. I used to go out every week dancing rock and roll so was quite active and fit. I am about 5' 9" and if I am not careful will soon have a waist to match. After having problems with hair colour I am now going for the natural look of grey although if I am honest I quite like it and not sure if it does make me look any older. My grandchildren are beginning to take up my time and bring me a lot of joy. I love going to the theatre and have begun attending the local productions, I have not been disappointed yet. My favorite is the Lyceum at Sheffield which I now try and visit on an afternoon and meet with either friends or family. Next week I am off with a bus load to see The Bodyguard in Leeds, looking forward to that. I have just renewed my English Heritage membership and hope to make more use of it this year. I enjoy going to Brodsworth Hall and listening to the bands sometimes taking sandwiches and a book if the weather is nice. Shopping I can take or leave and I am usually trailing behind whoever I am with, browsing. If I need anything I usually like to go alone. I enjoy reading fiction, thrillers are a favorite and I now have a kindle so have been introduced to some good authors not available at the library. I intend to get out walking more and reduce my waistline and then return to my dancing. There it is in writing so watch this space!
